Licorice allsorts with a difference

My latest piece of knitting, in between the knitting of the shawl I am making, is this quirky  piece I found in an old craft book I had.

allsortsThe pattern calls for 7mm needles and chunky wool.  No tension given so I assumed that 14 ply would be the type that was used.  I have knitted the orange and black one but it looks to be much smaller that the one illustrated.  Maybe when it is stuffed it will look bigger as the wool will stretch.

I haven’t sewn the pieces together yet but I will post a picture of the finished articles later.  This is the book where I found the pattern.

The great book of handicrafts
